Rotherham 10k and FunRun 2020

Homepage and Introduction

The 2020 Events
The format for this years event on the 17th May is slightly changed. The start time of the 10K race has been brought forward to 10:00, with the Fun Run following at 12:00. The courses for both remain the same as in 2019

We are hopeful to get more corporate teams in the 10K this year (the photo shows the 2019 winning team of four from Root One Advertising) and we hope to see more schools' athletes competing in the Primary Inter-school Challenge as part of the Fun Run

We are also planning to have a range of activities and refreshments available in the park, for families and groups to enjoy after the event. We will again have a free Physiotherapy / massage service to ease those tired legs.
